Rescuers in Southern California have located a missing 75-year-old hiker on the same mountain where the actor Julian Sands remained missing.

Jin Chung of Los Angeles was located Tuesday afternoon at Mount Baldy, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday night. He was taken to a hospital with “weather-related injuries and a leg injury,” the sheriff’s department said, but was still able to walk out of the woods “with some assistance.”

Chung had been reported missing Sunday, according to the sheriff’s department. He had driven to the mountain with two others and planned to meet them back at the vehicle at 14 the same day but did not return, authorities said.

The sheriff’s department said Tuesday that the 65-year-old Sands remained missing and “no evidence of his current location has been discovered.”

Sands was first reported missing on January 13 while hiking in Mt. Baldy, which is located in the San Gabriel Mountains, about 40 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. It borders both LA and San Bernardino counties.

The department has previously warned hikers to “stay away” from Mt. Baldy area.

“It is extremely dangerous and even experienced hikers get into trouble,” the sheriff’s department said.

Earlier this month, Crystal Paula Gonzalez, mother of four, died after sliding more than 500 feet down Mt. Baldy. She was described by friends and family as an experienced hiker.

Sands starred opposite Helena Bonham Carter in the 1985 British romance from director James Ivory, “A Room With a View”.

He also had major roles in 1989’s “Warlock”, 1990’s “Arachnophobia”, 1991’s “Naked Lunch”, 1993’s “Boxing Helena” and 1995’s “Leaving Las Vegas”.

Sands has worked consistently in the decades since with minor roles in film and television.
